Pear Ginger Mocktini On Rocks, Lipton Tea & Honey #FamilyTeaTime

I’m sure you’ve noticed that I like playing around with creating drinks. Drink recipes are just as much fun to create as food and baking recipes. The results are just a delicious too. A couple of days ago, I got some new Lipton Tea & Honey “to go” and pitcher packets to play with. Check out what I came up with!

The new Lipton Tea & Honey comes in “To Go” packets that are meant for a standard size water bottles (16.9 oz) and “pitcher” packets meant for a quart-sized pitchers.
Both sizes come in variety of  flavors. The “to go” iced tea packets come in six flavors including raspberry black tea, lemon black tea, peach apricot black tea, mango pineapple green tea, blackberry pomegranate green tea and strawberry acai decaf green tea. The pitcher iced tea packets come in four great flavors including lemon black tea, peach apricot black tea, mango pineapple green tea and blackberry pomegranate. My personal favorite to drink straight up is blackberry pomegranate, I’m a sucker for pomegranates.

Even though I love pomegranate flavors, I wanted to make something with pears. I was at the store, looking at fruit, and I realized that it’s been too long since I got or made anything with pears. The attention always falls on pumpkins and apples in the fall but pears are also a great fall fruit.
Ginger also has a wonderful flavor and many health benefits. Ginger improves circulation and blood flow, helps with preventing and treating gastrointestinal problems and helps prevent and treat cold and flue symptoms. Ladies, a study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that ginger was as effective as ibuprofen for relieving painful periods (source)! For these and many more reasons, I always have a fresh ginger root in the house.

Pear and ginger made a wonderful combination for this soothing and flavorful mocktail. It’s easy to make and a couple of extra steps are well worth the end result.

Pear Ginger Mocktini On Rocks

Ingredients:
1 Lipton Tea & Honey, Lemon Iced Black Tea pitcher packet
1 tbs fresh grated ginger
1 large pear
2 cups of hot water
Cold water to fill the remainder of quart-sized pitcher

1. First, peel and grate the ginger root and combine with 1 cup of really hot water. Stir and let sit for about 10 minutes.
2. Peel, core and thinly slice the pear. Add pear slices to the pitcher.  Add 1 cup of hot water, stir and let stand for about 5 minutes.
** Those two steps will bring out the wonderful flavors and aroma of ginger and pear.

3. Pour the ginger/water mixture, through a stainer, into the pitcher. Press on the ginger to squeeze out all the water. Discard ginger.
4. Add the Lipton Tea & Honey lemon black tea packet to the pitcher. Mix well until all dissolved.
5. Fill the pitcher with cold water.

Enjoy!!
